Good luck getting a majority of anything without women.

To say that we need to throw women's rights under the bus so we can take back the house is ludicrous. You will see mass protests and many women leave the party.

Good luck getting a majority of anything without us!

1. What is their alternative? Independent?

 

The Democratic Party is still the women's best "choice" in a major party.

2. Not if they throw women's rights under the bus.

I would prefer Democrats just do the right thing instead of forcing us into this position to begin with.

I've been a lifelong Democrat. But I can't support a party that is willing to throw women's rights under the bus.

Where do you draw the line? Do we openly accept racists into the party next?

Seriously. How would we sell that? It's ok for a candidate to feel whites are superior and that certainly couldn't taint their voting or legislation and they are still the best option for black people?

Ludicrous.

5. Fuck that.

This is the same fucking argument that has been used to bully the left into line; now you are using it against women? The Democratic Party is going to bully itself into failure after failure after failure continuing to use this failed strategy.

There is not a damned thing wrong with holding a "major party" accountable for walk and talk when it comes to issues. To answer your question: There are more independent voters than Democratic OR Republican voters. Neither "major party" can afford to ignore them.

4. It's beyond humorous that WOMEN

Organized like mad in our outrage to DT, we led the biggest march like, ever? But sure we'll roll over and be property again, red districts!

Idiots.
